to be available overseas at the last point of departure for the united states. we fixed that. we learned that our adversaries were moving to nonmetallic devices. we adapted our screening technology and tactics to counter that. and we learned that a single vulnerability in any part of the aviation system can make everyone connected to it vulnerable. since we don't control security at foreign airports, we have to work even more closely with international partners to raise the overall security of the system. we did that. shortly after the christmas day plot, i launched a worldwide initiative to make these needed changes in close collaboration with our strongest allies. i am proud to say that i october of 2010, this effort led to 190 countries signing onto an historic agreement to improve aviation security, standards, and technology and information sharing. i have had the chance to visit many of those countries over the past 4.5 years. 40 in all across six continents however, our work did not end there. following the 2010 air cargo threat which involved bombs hidden inside printer cartridges departin

be asking is what will we do? let me emphasize, president obama, we in the united states, we believe in the united nations and we have great respect for the brave inspectors who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation. but as the secretary general has said again and again, the u.n. investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. that is not the mandate of the u.n. investigation. they will only affirm whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the u.n. can't tell us anything we haven't shared with you this afternoon or that we don't already know. and because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism through any action through the u.n. security council the u.n. cannot galvanize the world to act as it should. let me be clear, we will continue talking to the congress, talking to our allies and most importantly, talking to the american people. president obama will ensure that the united states of america makes our own decisions on our own time lines based on our values and our interests. now, we know that after a decade of
of the united states. and that overrides everything, can you imagine we talked about the jubilation, we heard about jubilation. in damascus, obviously, in iraq, russia and imagine the demoralization, not just among the rebels looking up to the sky and looking for assistance, but among all the states in the region who live on the word of the united states, jordan, saudi, kuwaitis, israel, egypt, to a large extent. and they hear a president who has no idea what he is doing and speaks about this and will take off in a couple of days and end up in sweden and moscow. all of this is happening. what the president ought to do -- i can't believe that he actually decided otherwise, look to bring it to congress tomorrow. we have reagan airport, national airport, dulles, bwi. you can use the airports. you bring in the members of congress and you have a debate for two days. and you have a resolution. you can't leave the region hanging. it looks absolutely as if the united states has chickened out. and that's the work of the president. because of the way he did this even though i think a limited attack is

military exercise. this is a biannual event which includes the united states and other countries, involves thousands of air and ground forces from the u.s. it's set to take place next month. so this would be a strong symbol of u.s. opposition to the violence, and the ongoing unrest in egypt if the united states were to delay this event. those are some of the things that the u.s. has been considering. so far the only real step the administration has taken is postpone sending three f-16 fighter jets to egypt. we know that president obama continues to get updated by the situation by his national security adviser susan rice who is traveling here in martha's vinyard with him so he'll likely discuss the latest information he has gotten on those briefings we know secretary of state john kerry has been in touch with counter parts in the region. >> kristin welker, we know you'll be standing by for us. in the meantime, i want to go to cairo. it is just after 4:00 in the afternoon. get us up to speed on what's been happening there today. >> reporter: well, a lot of rapid developments unfolding here o

in the united states and around the world. tonight, there is breaking news on the showdown with syria. president obama making the case for a possible military strike. he says there's clear proof the regime was behind the use of deadly chemical weapons. . the president has not made a final decision on military options but appears to be moving closer to using force. >> in no event are we considering any military action that would involve boots on the ground, that would involve a long-term campaign. but we are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act that would help make sure that not only syria, but others around the world understand that the international community cares about maintaining this chemical weapons ban. >> we'll have the very latest developments this hour, including graphic video of a purported new chemical attack. is the president doing the right thing if he goes it alone? what will it mean for america if he does? i'll talk to hans blix, the former chief united nations weapons inspector. >>> plus, the nfl's land mark concussion settlement. what it means for the sport and t
unauthorized surveillance of americans or foreign intelligence targets in the united states. in one case the nsa intercepted a "large number" of calls placed from washington when a programming error infused u.s. area code 202 for 20, the international dialing code for egypt. the report comes out less than a week after president obama told reporters abuses have not been committed at the nsa. >> if you look at the reports, even the disclosures mr. snowden has put forward, all of the stories that have been reported, what you're not reading about is the government actually abusing listening ins and on people's phone calls or inappropriately reading people's e-mails. what you're hearing about is the prospect that these could be abused. part of the reason they're not abused is because these checks are in place. those abuses would be against the law and against the orders of the foreign intelligence surveillance court. >> the washington post has also published a rare comment from reggie b walton. he said the court lacks the tools to independently verify how often government surveillance breaks

suffered the same fate. the united states government now knows that at least 1429 syrians were killed in this attack including at least 426 children. even the first responders, the doctors, nurses and medics who tried to save them, they became victim themselves. we saw them gasping for air. terrified that their own lives were in danger. this is the indiscriminate, this is what assad did to his own people. we also know disturbing details about the aftermath. we know that a senior regime official who knew about the attack confirmed that chemical weapons were used by the regime. reviewed the impact and actually was afraid they would be discovered. we know this. we know what they did next. i personally called the foreign minister of syria and i said to him if as you say your nation has nothing to hide then let the united nations in immediately and give the inspectors the unfetzered access so they have the opportunity to tell your story. for four days they shelled the neighborhood in order to destroy evidence. bombarding block after block at a rate four times higher than they had over the
rodham clinton was sworn in as secretary of the united states. secretary clinton joined the state department after nearly four decades as an advocate, attorney, first lady, and senator. she attended local public schools before graduating from wellesley college, where she met bill clinton. she married bill clinton and became a successful attorney while also raising chelsea. she was an assistant professor at the university of arkansas law school, and she was appointed by jimmy carter to serve on the board of the legal services corporation, which she later chaired. during her 12 years as first lady she was chairman of the co- standards committee and served on the board of the children's hospital and children's defense fund. in 2000 hillary clinton made history as the first first lady ever elect did to the united states senate and the first woman elected statewide in new york. in the senate she served on the armed services committee, the environment and public works committee, the budget committee, and the committee on aging. she was also a commissioner on cooperation in europe. clint
>>> i'm wolf blitzer in washington. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to our special coverage this hour of the crisis in syria. president obama's about to make a major statement when it comes to syria. we expect him to be in the white house rose garden. there you see live picture frs the rose garden in about 15 minutes or so. we're told the statement will not necessarily suggest an imminent u.s. military strike, but rather an update about his decisions on how to proceed in syria. he's been meeting all morning with his top national security advisers at the white house. all this came earlier in the day, the signals were clearly there, even yesterday, officials started arriving at the white house today to go in the situation room, including the vice president, the secretary of defense, chuck hagel, the secretary of state, john kerry. the national security adviser to the president. the top military commanders as well. they've been meeting in the white house. there you see general martin dempsey. the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. there's a
internally in the united states. that's violating the right of free association under the first amendment. >> so when you have, however, on the other hand, you have john bates the judge having this scathing rhetoric within those court documents. what does that do? does that kind of solidify or not solidify the idea of the fisa court being a rubber stamp court? >> well, what -- the fisa court coming out and saying they really have no way of verifying, and even the chief judge said he has no way of verifying. that i've been saying for a long time they don't have any technical means of verifying the validity of the statements being made to them. u even in august of 2002 the fisa court came out, a story was broken by the "new york times" where the court detected 75 cases where the f.b.i. misled the court in soliciting 75 warrants. well, that probably was only the tip of the iceberg, too. so this is a longstanding problem. they've known about it for a long time. they never really have attempted to solve it. >> now, one of the purposes of edward snowden having revealed a huge surveillance appar
that the united states is going to wait for that u.n. finding. because in the eyes of the u.s., as we heard yesterday, the determination has already been made. but for the time being, the u.n. inspectors on the ground are done with their work in determining exactly what happened on august 21st. alex? >>> now, their assignment was to find out if a chemical weapon attack happened, correct? not to place certainty on who launched it. do we know they have come to a conclusive evidence of that? >>> you're absolutely right. the mandate that was given to inspectors from the united nations was not to assign blame, not to determine who used chemical weapons but to determine if chemical weapons were simply used. for some that's already a foregone conclusion. from the thousands of videos that he emerged, the testimonies that have come out, from some of the arguments that the u.s. intelligence community made in that assessment that was declassified yesterday. the argument is there was definitely chemical weapons used. by the own syrian government's account, chemical weapons were used. shortly after that
founding fathers inviting the first amendment articulated many times that if the united states lost its belief in god, and for our founding fathers belief in god was judeo-christian religion. that we would lose our liberty, and i begin with this thinking, these were geniuses that created our declaration for independence, our constitution, bill of rights, and why would they think that? and how is it that america today has allowed the aclu step-by-step to make this into a very secular nation where it's almost a crime to even have an expression of judeo-christian belief in a school or in the public square, or as i'm arguing, the aclu is about to move in to the churches to criminalize christianity. i think that's where it's ultimately headed. when i started researching "bad samaritans," i realized that the foundation of the aclu was in radical socialism and even communism. the founders, some of the original board members were writing books like soviet-american. it had its origin, the aclu, in the end of world war i and the very sabbaticals who opposed going into the military, including the
, and cultural ties that binds the united states and britain. in 1940, the fate of the world hung on the united states, and that summer, republicans and democrats would hold their conventions in preparation for the november presidential election. what are conventions? bands playing, parades, cheering, and politicians speaking. both of the conventions that took place in the summer of 1940, there was an elephant in the hall. not the republican elephant, but the nazi's elephant with an uninvited guest, and his name was adolf hitler. the question on everyone's mind was whether fdr wanted the party no , nomination again in 1940, and he refused to give a clear answer. mr. president, would you tell us now if you'd accept a third term, one reporter asked him point-blank? put on a dunce cap and go stand in the corner, fdr replied with a laugh. not even the members of his own family knew what his real intentions were. of course, one question was whether fdr deserved another four years in the white house. his attorney general, robert jackson, was convinced that war and war alone compelled fdr to run for a

from entering into the united states, a whole list of russian officials. 18 russian officials thought to be either connected with this specific death or accused of other human rights abuses. russia, of course, was enraged by this, enraged by the rebuke, enraged that the united states would try to take some sort of moral high ground on human rights issues, russia protested vociferously and it ultimately led to the tit for tat list, banning 18 americans by name, if we're going to ban 18 russians by name. it also led to a ban on american parents adopting russian orphans. and it not only banned american parents from adopting russian children in the future, it halted adoptions that were already well underway for hundreds of families. hundreds of russian kids, more than 300 who had already met their new american families, who had been told they would be going home to their new home with their new parents, those hopes were just ended in a gut-wrenchingly abrupt way. those kids were told that they would remain in their orphanages. there are 600,000 children living in overcrowded russian orpha
in the united states and around the would recall. i'm fareed zakaria. we have a great show for you today. we will start with violence in egypt. bret stephens and peter beinart disagree as usual. >>> then, is america overregulated? does the government have altogether too much of a say in how we live our lives? i'll ask the man who put many of the obama administration's regulations in place, cass c sunstein. >>> also underneath the violence, is the arab world the new start-up society? that's what an american venture capitalist believes. and while we're at innovation, is north korea going to beat apple at its own game? obviously no, but i will explain. >>> but first, here's my take. if there is one crisis that both the american left and right agree is real, it is of declining mobility. the american dream is at heart that someone no matter his or her background can make it in this country. a few weeks ago, four economists at harvard and the university of california at berkeley released a path-breaking study of mobility within the united states. and last week, the "journal of economic perspective
, as earlier. >> you mentioned the nuclear issue and western nations like the united states looking to see what comes out of his presidency in the initial few months. how closely will they be watching all of this, then? be expecting the united states and its allies to be watching very closely. hesan rowhani indicated that wants a softer approach to foreign policy and end the era of rhetoric and sloganeering, as replacing vengeance with friendship and better relations. indications are positive, and moderate here in iran, and obama a democrat in the united states, analysts say the timing is right but it is a short window for both sides to actually get anything done or make any progress. it is a long time, i expect the united states to be watching closely who he chooses for his cabinet. to thell all signal outside world his intentions for the country. they do very much for that. change reaction, saying it does not change the objectives of iran. iran saidsident of the day before yesterday that israel is a wounded body and the goal of the regime has stayed the same, to develop a nuclear capability,
. i will start with too provocative themes from our book is going to tehran by the united states must come to terms with the republic of iran. and the first of the theme is the united states is today and has been for the past two years in power it relative to the decline in the middle east and also we have been the beneficiary of america is ongoing decline in the middle east is the islamic republic of iran. if you are not sure you agree with these propositions of want to ask you to prepare their relative position of the united states and the islamic republic of vibration in the mideast today with where they were even with 9/11 just over 10 years ago. on the eve of 9/11, every single government in the middle east was every'' one dash pro-american dash egypt and turkey are in negotiations to become pro-american like syria or libya or the taliban government in afghanistan are staying in iraq every single government was either pro-american in negotiations it to become pro-american or anti-iranian that is a good position for the united states in the middle east. but because of elections to

and anyone so a lot of the organizing resulted in us finding a hostile attitude in the united states because there was so much support in this drumbeat of war that could somehow relate this to 9/11, which had nothing to do with it. he saw opinion polls that were in favor of the war as the years went by and as americans started to get upset about the number of american lives that were being killed. we never hear much about the lives of people in the country that we have invaded. so the poll started shifting and saying americans are excited about continuing what seemed like i thought the same time there was a shift in government policy on the ground in some extensive war effort in terms of american lives and dollars to this new technology in the jones and we immediately having the state department as a diplomatic arm of the u.s. government. being in a meeting with people from the human rights area to pakistan some of the meat people are saying that the jones our miracle weapon. this explains who got killed, but american lives and what i've got what she did not as to allow us to expand behind t
faulkner. how will the united states respond to the crisis in syria that has millions of people pouring over the borders trying to escape the slaughter house that their country has become. it could create now havens for terrorist and american national security time talked about the next step and talked about what is unfolding, pictures that are so hard to look at and impossible to aunticate and seem to go along with chemical attacks in syria. and more on the high level meeting for you. and first a deadly game of back and forth played out at this houred in of syria. they are accusing the anti- government rebels of using chemical weapons and others call that a thinly veiled attempt from the nerve gas assault on a neighborhood they say. defense secretary chuck hagel asked the pentagon to prepare military options for syria and that requires posiinging our forces. we know a fourth warm ship armed with ballistic missiles has been is not to the mediterranean sea. and the chief is there to urge the syrian government to allow united nation's experts to look at chemical weapons attacks. aid group
to america's calculus vis-a-vis syria right now? >> i mean, let me be blunt. if the united states decides to strike against syria, this would be an american operation. america would take ownership of this particular operation. american operation without a u.n. security council resolution, a u.s. operation without the final report by the u.n. inspectors, a u.s. operation without a broadly based coalition. france said it would join the united states. turkey and saudi arabia and qatar. but they have been the spearhead of the fight against the assad regime. thus, the united states would be joining the anti-assad regime. the reality is regardless of how you -- we try to really explain the american operation, few in the region -- and i'm talking about the middle east and the muslim world -- would see this operation as an american operation. regardless of how important the u.s. evidence is, and it's very powerful evidence against the assad regime, the consequences, i think, would be very pivotal, both for the region and i think for america's interests in that part of the world. >> professor, yes
